president played a role here. how significant is it that egypt is playing the shots? >> when it came to trying to mediate the deals, egypt has played a critical role what has changed is the dynamics, the ally of the west and the de facto ally of israel is no longer in power and the egyptians became an entity and that changed a lot of the dynamics and that has changed the way it has been playing out here on the ground. the frame work of what is transpiring here, that is what has changed at this point. most certainly, given the fact that it is a young government, it has in one sense past that first critical test. thank you very much indeed. >> welcome to you. >> thank you for having me. >> can you you outline what you believe the spirit of this agreement to be today? it is an arrangement that has been with the support of the united states and it promises us the people of southern israel peace and quiet. that they no longer have to fear rockets coming in. the promise of the possibility to live a normal life. >> i understand that it promises the people of gaza a better future we are hear
and the palestinian leadership on the west bank, and in egypt, i think that could result in something. we'll see if she can help break this logjam. they were close but they're not there until they're there. >> she used an interesting phrase. she described the situation as requiring deescalation rather than cease-fire. what did she mean by that? >> right. i think they're talking about having some sort of period of what the palestinians call calm or what the israelis want to test to see what the hamas militants in gaza are up to. they're not ready to call it a formal cease-fire and remember, the u.s., israel, the europeans, for that matter, they don't recognize hamas. they regard hamas as a terrorist organization so it's awkward. they can't deal directly with one of the principal players in this part of the world, hamas, which controls gaza. it's up to countries like egypt or turkey or qatar to broker that kind of a deal because they have good relations with hamas. so it's an awkward situation and there's no trust, totally no trust from hamas towards the israelis and certainly no trust from the is
expect? the people will be poor. >> maybe the position of egypt and today president mohammed morsi said this? >> translator: we are with them, what hurts us and the blood that flows from their children is our blood, too opinion. >> what did you make of that? >> we preferred to look at egyptian deeds rather than words. egypt has played a constructive role in the past in mediating cease-fires with gaza and we hope that the egyptians will continue to fulfill a constructive role in the future. >> you must have been disconcerted by the tone of president morsi's rhetoric there. >> again, we prefer to look at the egyptian deeds and they will play a constructive role in helping convince them to stop firing these thousands of rockets at our civilians. >> is your intention at the same time to continue targeting hamas leaders and to continue, if you can, killing them? >> well, we'll take any measures necessary to stop the aggression against the civilians and we're taking immense precautions not to hurt palestinian civilians. our planes have carried out hundreds of attacks and the number of palesti
. by the way, they now have a common border with egypt. they can send people and we don't think there is any shortage of food, any other human needs. we are open to that they can move. it's only against arms and they can ship, they can come, they can go and they can stop. we cannot stop. it's one-sided. that's the problem. we left gaza willingly. nobody forced us. and we are aware that gaza is densely populated. it doesn't give us any pleasure whatsoever to see anybody in gaza suffering. what for? we want to regain peace with them. we don't hate them. we don't try to get any glories or any victovictories. we want to live in peace. they can stop any suffering in one second. stop shooting and that's it. officials say we stop shooting, it won't help. the order of 200, 300 missiles a day, one-sided, their initiative. look, i am for fairness but to be fair when you have [ inaudible ], without a choice, you cannot equalize the two of them. >> if you believe, mr. president, that iran is behind a lot of the hamas terror activity, as you put it, then what action do you intend to take against iran? >>
to egypt, in egypt, in the tombs, the pyramids -- >> like a sphinx face. >> they used to try to domesticate. you saw how big the tigers were? it won't get that thick. you see how thin it is. look at the ears of this cat. see why -- they didn't worship the animal but the animal represented royalty back then. i'm sure a lot of people lost their hands trying to domesticate this creature. what's unique, this is one of the only cats in the world that can jump ten feet in the air and catch a bird flying. they get in the grass, i have seen this twice in wild, they blend in so well, they live in the plains of kenya, tanzania, that part of the world, and they don't exist hardly up in egypt anymore. they lay down in there, watch for a bird and go popping up like that because their back legs -- >> ten feet -- >> it's amazing. they can grab the bird flying by. it's a caracle cat. that gives him away, the ears. >> okay. what's next? what are these? >> this is amazing. this cat also is a cat -- this cat also's a cat that is from africa. this cat has the front legs and hind legs are different. he's one of
are direct negotiations. when we made peace with egypt, we negotiated, it was hard, it was frustrating, but we -- it wasn't imposed from the outside. when we did peace with jordan, it was the same thing. now president obama in 2010 stood up and said, you know, you have to reach an agreement, it can't be imposed from the outside. what the palestinians did today basically doesn't change anything for palestinians on the ground tomorrow. young people will stand up, more expectations, higher frustrations. at the end of the day, the distance that abbas did instead of flying ten hours to new york, could have driven ten minutes over to jerusalem, sit down with netanyahu without any preconditions and talk about the major issues that are important for both sides to solve. >> do you think a deal can actually get done, or are we just basically just going to see a lot more posturing before more missiles start ricocheting around on both sides? >> as you know, i was, i think dr. erakat was with me on the negotiation table. it's tough, it's hard, but you really have to sit there understanding that the
in tunisia, in egypt, in libya. have you encouraged that? do you encourage the people of those countries to rise up and to protest? >> you see, for the people to rise up or to start a movement it's their on prerogative. we do not meddle or interfere in that. we believe everywhere justice respect freedom and friendship must prevail. >> do you believe fundamentally in a man or a woman's right to protest? >> yes. it depends on the laws of any nation. all nations' laws are not equal. they differ. in most countries in one way or another this is allowed under the laws. but fundamentally, i do agree, certainly people must be allowed to express their own opinions freely. freedom is part of the essential rights of all nations. >> if that is -- >> no one has the right to take that away. >> if that is the case, why has the daughter of the former president of iran, why has she been imprisoned for protesting against your regime? >> in iran, there's only one regime so perhaps they're protesting against that. and in iran the judicial branch is not under the power of the government, they have their own
